American Racing Rogue (Black) vs. Niche F-18 (Black) - Honest Opinions Needed

Hi everybody! I was just wondering if you guys can help me out. Ive taken about 2 weeks and been trying to sort through wheel selections for my 2006 mustang GT COUPE (TUNGSTEN GRAY)... Ive been able to narrow it down to two and i was wondering if you guys can give me honest opinions as to which one i should put on my car and why... THANKS! (im planning to get 20 x 9 or 8.5 in front and 20 x 10 at back)

AMERICAN RACING Rogue (Black)

vs

Niche F-18 (BLACK)

THANKS..

PS. POST PICTURE IF YOU GOT ANY OF THESE TIRES ON YOUR RIDE... THANKS!!

The F-18's are really different,nice though.Wheels/tires are a big investment.What may look good this summer may change a year or two from now.
The Rogues IMO have a new/old style mix that would prolly look just as good 10 years from now as they do today.

The spokes on the Niche are too thick and angular for my taste.

Hmm... both are nice. If you want to go classic, get the rogues. If your style runs to the new school, go with the f-18.

Me, I like the f-18, but I've also got a "park bench" on my trunk lid!!! (or so I've been told by a guy with a duck tail.)

I went straight for the reply and didn't read anybody elses opinions.

American Racing Rogue

The F18 looks like a bling bling fat chrome rim, that you would find on an escalade

What he said. I don't particularly like black rims, but the AR ones look better.

Of the 2,I like the Rogues best...but I honestly don't care for a black wheel on any car.But it's yours,if that's what you want-Go for it

"Life is not a journey to the grave with intentions of arriving safely in a pretty well preserved body,but rather to skid in broadside,thoroughly used up,totally worn out and loudly proclaiming.....WOW!.....What a ride!

"As you grow older,don't slow down,speed up-there's less time left"--over 45 and just now realizing how much I don't know

I went with the F-18s, too. Very aggressive look and lots of oglers.

I like the look of the Niche wheels, but I like the F-16's better. more of a clean look.
